DIY Halloween Wreath ~ For $7 or less!

The kids got really excited about fall, and they have been talking about Halloween.  So on the weekend, we hauled out the bin of decorations and started getting the house perked up for the season.  

I grabbed supplies from a dollar store to make a wreath (finally) and threw together a cute little theme what was very quick to make and came with very little cost. Its super cute, the kids love it, and I think it will hold up in the elements.


Halloween Wreath

foam wreath form (I had this on hand)
3 lengths of Halloween garland ($1 each)
other Halloween themed items (I used a witchy hat & spider web --- $4)
black yarn





I wrapped the wreath form with the garland, pinning the ends to it.  This took exactly 3 of the full lengths of garland, and it looks really nice and full.

I secured the witchy hat (which is actually a headband) to the wreath form with pins.  Then I just stuck the spiderweb to the front of the wreath and tied it to the sides of the wreath with the black yarn that doubled as the string to hang the wreath from the hook on the door.


Here's the final product:







Thought I'd also share a couple of shots of the rest of the Halloween scene.  The boys love it :)
